Quick Saturday PM update:
Cottonwoods/PC is on the northern periphery of what could be some wrap around precip tonight. It’s an incredibly tough call, but it’s not out of the question that we see 1-3″ from I-80 south tonight along the Wasatch Back and crest. Radar returns showing a bit of snow moving into the Wasatch Back right now south of Sundance. Southern/Eastern Utah can expect continued off and on snow in the high elevation through midday tomorrow.
Low pressure continues to pass to our south. SoCal, Arizona, Southern Utah, New Mexico, and Southwest Colorado have been inundated with rain and high elevation snow over the past two days. The Wasatch has been just north of the action and will continue to be so through the weekend. Occasional clouds and even a couple showers will be possible as far north as SLC, with gusty easterly winds continuing.
Southern Utah has seen lots of snow and that will continue at least through today. Here’s a look at Brian Head this morning:
Looks good, eh?
After this low finally exits the desert southwest by Monday, we’ll see a drying and warming trend across the state. Looks like another closed low is going to drop down off the California coast next week and possibly bring a few showers to Utah late on Thanksgiving day or on Friday.
Unfortunately, there are no major systems showing up in the next 10 days or so. Models continue to try to bring a pattern change into the area during the first week of December, let’s hope that does the trick.
